West Texas, Texa...
I have used this pattern at least 5 times and I love the fit of these jeans! Unfortunately this time my denim did not have enough stretch and the jeans look better on my mannequin than they do on me! I meticulously sewed these and even added a panel in the front to slim the tummy. Alas! All is not lost though because I am offering a “Build Your Own Jeans” class at my sewing cafe and these are on display. A lesson learned and one I will surely pass on to my students.
